They're actually close friends, there's zero evidence that this was all planned to attack the president. Also we have the word from Mrs. Johnson, her mother, and a Congresswoman whom are all on the same page, versus a serial liar who actually did start politicizing these condolence contacts, whom also claims a different account and claims he has proof that the accusations were fabricated yet won't release said proof.

It's funny how Trump and his base were up in arms about some football players kneeling in protest of unfair treatment by law enforcement, and somehow that was a sign of serious disrespect for the soldiers who fight for their country. Then their orange lord serves some serious disrespect to the family of the soldier who died fighting for his country, and they attack the soldier's family instead.
I hear what you are saying and I can see your point of view. However, there needs to be a little skepticism applied to this whole thing.

First, knowing that Trump has nothing to gain by being disrespectful to Mrs. Johnson on a phone call, what would be his motivation for doing this? Do you believe that he intentionally used language to upset her or disrespect her husbands service? If so, why would he do it?

Next you need to ask yourself why was the congresswomen present for the call? As I stated earlier, phone calls from the President generally don't just come out of the blue, they are set up by the WH staff prior to the President calling as he doesn't have time to call people that are not available. Another poster claimed that she was upset that he called when he did. If so, why did she agree to it? When the WH staff contacted her, she could have chosen another time, but she agreed to this one.

Also, knowing when the President would call sure makes in convenient for this congresswomen to be present for the call. Is this something that she would normally be involved with? I highly doubt it, but if she says they are that close, I will take her word for that.

That being said, from what I have heard, I know that Trump's vocabulary is about equal to a typical 5th grade student. He is not the most eloquent speaker to occupy the WH. But based on what was reported, I think that Mrs. Johnson is looking for a reason to be offended. And having the congresswomen present for the call reinforces my opinion of that.

You can choose to believe otherwise and that is fine. I see it a little different. There is just too much vitriol in the media and the Democratic party for this to be just a coincidence that she received a call from Trump at the same time that she happened to be riding in the car with a congresswomen that has threatened to impeach the President.

Call me skeptical but this smells pretty fishy to me.

I showed you a video of Kelly saying Wilson said X. I showed you the video of the speech where she never said X. You don't need to apply logic to determine your opinion. You simply look and see that she did not say what Kelly says she said. It's not that hard unless you just can't bring yourself to admit Kelly lied.

Still waiting on that intelligent response.
